Sporty Granny Car — Appearance great sporty looking, lots of room for car seats or girl friends for the weekend. Seems to handle well on roadways, safe, sits up higher than most little cars so you don't feel like you are scraping the road.

Pros

Really like the exterior style and fit and finish

Cons

Don't care for the average economy

Generally Very Positive — I really like the exterior style and overall multipurpose functionality of the vehicle. It is a truly sport utility vehicle with a attractive appearance and good drive-ability. The rear seats fold flat and make for increased cargo functionality. The ride and drive is responsive and sporty, giving one a good feel of the road without being super stiff like the larger SUV's.

Pros

I love the look of this car! It's sleek and also has a sporty side to it, so even though I use it as a "mom" car, it definitely doesn't look like the normal mom-type car! Hasn't had to go into the shop at all except for oil-changes! Handles beautifully on the highway and in town.

Cons

My husband is a tall/big guy so with the kids and their carseats he doesn't have the legroom he would like.

Great Family And Sporty Car! — I love the look of this car! It's sleek and also has a sporty side to it, so even though I use it as a "mom" car, it definitely doesn't look like the normal mom-type car! Hasn't had to go into the shop at all except for oil-changes! Handles beautifully on the highway and in town. I would recommend this car to anyone with kids because it's a safe and trustworthy vehicle that young kids can easily climb in and out of (but not completely on their own because of the child-locks on the doors!)

Pros

Great creature comforts and accessories over and above the Saturn VUE from which it originates. Great styling comparable to its bigger cousin, the Cadillac Escalade.

Cons

Poorly engineered six speed transmission function.

Overall Very Sporty And Enjoyable. — Makes one's heart skip a beat when viewed from the exterior. Great styling with affordable comfort and reasonable economy. The V-6 engine has adequate power and an "Eco" mode that improves highway mileage. Six speed transmission shifts haltingly trying to get into the highest gear as quickly as possible for improved mileage economy.
